The Library and Information News is so broad and wide!

Nevertheless, the region's publishing industry is a very important area. Currenty I have been doing some research which indicate that the region's publishers are very important for providing the region with indigenous material and information about themselves and their identity. Especially the factgual information relevant to our own developmental needs and cultural perspectives.
